Hello Barbara, It is important to remember that there is a standardized
way of writing dates in genealogical records, i.e. today is 30 Jan
2015. With the dates you have written, I can't be sure whether Ingar's
birth date is 04 Dec 1854 or 12 Apr 1854. I did check both for death
dates but found nothing. The problem most of us run unto with single
female emigrants is that they marry and their names change. You also
need to be looking for Ingar "Olson".

I have been searching a long time for Ingar Olsdotter born
farm #5 Träne sn
who emigrated to the US in 1879-09-02 Daughter of Ola Andersson and
My mother told me she was in Iowa working as a cook for a private family.
I have concentrated my search on Iowa but I am wondering if she returned
She had a brother Anders/Andrew who moved around but settled in
Friendship, Yellow Medicine County Minnesota; and a sister Anna who
lived in Chicago, Illinois and Boston, Massachusetts.
The family seems to be fractured and the reason for it is unknown to me.
I have not found a word about her in my searches. Perhaps she married
and is in records under her married name
I would greatly appreciate any information about Ingar.
